Great value for a dependable car Basic model, so no crossbars on roof rack and no fog lights and surprised it had no safety cover for the back hatch area. It does have auto 4-spd sport drive!

Awesome Car, Rally Car In The Snow — Not much to say, it's the 2.5i automatic so not very exciting, but it'll carry 4 people comfortably anywhere, rain/shine/snow. The only reason I would sell it would be to replace it with a newer model (2010 and above).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Ground clearance, snow driving, cargo capacity, comfortable seats

Cons: Underpowered, missing fifth/sixth gear

Love It! — This is a great little car that I bought used to travel to work. Gas mileage is good and handling even better, especially in snow. So far there have been no maintenance problems. I have a manual transmission that shifts easily and smooth. I love this car and would like to get a new one someday.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RIde, Handling, Gas Mileage, Comfort

Cons: Inconveniently located cup holders, accessory covers that don't close properly, only minor things

Subaru Outback 2008 — It is a great car, especially if you really need a wagon. It is a perfect size. Very roomy without being a bulky SUV. The AWD is fantastic, this is a great all-weather car. Makes sense why this a such a common car in New England.

Pros: This is a great car. Excellent quality. Well appointed with useful amenities.

Cons: None, really.

Best Car I've Ever Owned. — The outback is for our lifestyle. Outdoors, kids, family mixed with everyday life this car can basically handle anything I throw at it. My husband is an avid white water kayaker and he can haul three boats and three people with gear no problem. Nuff said.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I love how safe this car is for me and my family. The AWD makes me feel comfortable in inclement weather. Comfortable and roomy with two kids and cargo.

Cons: Lack of room in the back seat.

Solid, Safe, Economical Performer. — No complaints. All wheel drive for Midwestern winters. Good handling. Easy on gas. No major repairs after two years of ownership (purchased used in 2010). Sound system pretty decent. High safety ratings. Only drawback is poor acceleration on the highway.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: All wheel drive, fuel economy.

Cons: Doesn't accelerate well on the highway.

Outback Outrstanding — This is the car that does everything it is supposed to do . This is one up from the base and still has heated seats, mirrors and wipers. And in the Inland Northwest these are true attributes. Great gas mileage in lieu of power. Althoug h it is a Jelly bean in the northwest,but that's because it does what it was designed to do .

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Best car I have ever owned and one of the cheapest

Cons: Could use the addtional power Better sound system
